Gloria Ferrer Champagne Blend Carneros Royal Cuvée Brut 1999

External Review:

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Old enough that an edge of tiredness has crept into the complex aromas of caramel, toast, oyster shell and soy, this wine has a strong and insistent mousse as it enters the palate, and those bubbles stay the course all the way to the somewhat dry and papery-flavored finish. Its mix of highs and lows keeps us away, but no one will complain that it lacks either depth or range.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

As the first sparkling wine house in California’s renowned Carneros region, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards was established in 1986. Gloria Ferrer embodies Spanish winegrowing history, time-honored tradition, and centuries-old sustainable practices in creating exceptional sparkling and estate varietal wines blended to pair perfectly with food. With most of our 335-acre estate dedicated to Pinot Noir, we are steadfast in our belief that this enigmatic variety brings a timeless grace to our sparkling and estate varietal wines. The Ferrer family’s culture of generosity is expressed in their commitment to high-quality, affordable wines for everyone to enjoy. Celebrate Spain in Sonoma overlooking our Carneros estate vineyards. Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards is the gateway to Sonoma Wine Country, located 40 miles north of San Francisco at the southern tip of the county. While our wines are pure California, our culture is a charismatic blend of vibrant Spanish tradition and casual Sonoma County elegance — providing the ideal entry point for a California wine country experience with a global twist. Guests are encouraged to savor the breathtaking views of Carneros vineyards from our Vista Terrace, while sipping a glass of Gloria Ferrer sparkling or estate varietal wine.
